Paul Millsap had a non-surgical procedure on his left knee and will miss at least the next three games.
He has been diagnosed with left knee synovitis and will miss Tuesday's game vs. the Suns, Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers and Saturday's game vs. the Spurs. He will be re-evaluated after those three games, meaning the earliest we would see him back in action is on Sunday vs. the Nets. That's not a lock by any means, though. Ersan Ilyasova should be a nice source of points, rebounds and triples this week. Mar 27 - 8:05 PM

Paul Millsap (knee), Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

Despite an MRI on Millsap's knee coming back clean, the big man will miss his sixth game in a row. The Hawks do have three more games this week after Tuesday, but it's anybody's guess at this point if he will play. While he's said to be dealing with "left knee tightness," coach Mike Budenholzer said over the weekend that he also has some swelling. Ersan Ilyasova will draw another start at the four on Tuesday.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he doesn't know Paul Millsap's (knee) status for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

"Hopefully between now and then he makes more progress and there is a chance but at this point we don’t know about Tuesday," Budenholzer said on Sunday afternoon. Millsap has missed five games in a row due to left knee tightness, and the good news is that an MRI showed no damage. Hopefully we'll get a better idea of Millsap's status before weekly lineups lock later this evening. If he misses more time, Ersan Ilyasova will continue to benefit the most.

An MRI on Paul Millsap's left knee came back clean according to Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Millsap has already been ruled out for the fourth straight game on Sunday vs. the Nets, but based on Budenholzer's comments, the All-Star forward is likely day-to-day. His injury was previously described as "tightness" in his left knee, but Budenholzer added that he has some swelling as well. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns. Ersan Ilyasova will continue to be the primary beneficiary in his absence.

Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

Millsap will now miss at least one week for his knee tightness. The Hawks are a disaster without Millsap and have lost all six games without him this season. His fantasy owners will have a decision on their hands for the upcoming week, but he is day-to-day. With him out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a main option while Taurean Prince and Thabo Sefolosha get some added run.
Mar 25 - 5:03 PM

Paul Millsap (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Bucks.

This will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf and it's not a good sign that he isn't traveling with the team. Atlanta's next game is on Sunday vs. the 14-56 Nets, so his owners are in a tough spot. With Millsap out, Ersan Ilyasova is worth streaming if you need a bump in points, rebounds and triples.
Mar 23 - 10:51 AM

Head coach Mike Budenholzer said that Atlanta will make a decision as to whether Paul Millsap (knee) will join the team in Milwaukee for Friday's game on Thursday morning.

Budenholzer hinted on Monday that Millsap's absence could extend beyond two games (Monday and Wednesday), so we'll have to wait for the next official update on Thursday morning. With Millsap on the sidelines tonight, Ersan Ilyasova will earn another start and there will be some increased opportunity for guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and Taurean Prince.

Head coach Mike Budenholzer would not commit to Paul Millsap only needing two games off to rest up his left knee but did describe the injury as a "short term" issue.

At the very least, Millsap will be on the sidelines for both Monday and Wednesday's games, and it sounds like there's a chance he could miss Friday's matchup in Milwaukee as well. Ersan Ilyasova will be one of the primary beneficiaries with Millsap on the shelf, and there will also be more opportunity for guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and Taurean Prince. Millsap owners can expect to get more than a few updates leading up to Friday's tip.

Paul Millsap (left knee tightness) will not play in the next two games.

That's not good after it sounded like he was getting rest on Saturday. The Hawks play Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, so hopefully Millsap can make it back for a big game against the Bucks on Friday. While he's out, Ersan Ilyasova becomes a player worth owning in all standard leagues. This news also helps guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and we should see Taurean Prince in the rotation. The Hawks will go smaller more often, as well.
Mar 19 - 4:31 PM

Paul Millsap (left knee tightness) will not play on Saturday against the Blazers.

It will be his first game out of the lineup since Dec. 3. This is not on a back-to-back set and it's not on the road, so this isn't just rest for the 32-year-old forward. Ersan Ilyasova gets a big bump and Mike Muscala should also be in the rotation this evening.
Mar 18 - 5:20 PM

Paul Millsap hit just 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, three rebounds, a steal and a block on Thursday, and was dominated by JaMychal Green, who has been struggling lately.

It wasn't a great night for Millsap or the Hawks and this was his lowest scoring night in the month of March. Millsap had been playing well and power forwards tend to have a ton of success against the Blazers, who the Hawks face on Saturday night.
Mar 16 - 10:02 PM

Paul Millsap scored 16 points with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 40 minutes vs. the Spurs on Monday.

He hit 6-of-13 shots from the field, but finished 0-of-2 from beyond the arc and 4-of-6 from the line. After averaging 32.0 minutes per game in February, Millsap is averaging 37.4 minutes in March because he's playing more small-ball center next to Ersan Ilyasova. While fantasy owners are loving the bump in minutes, Millsap might be looking at a DNP or two down the stretch as the Hawks will want him fresh for the postseason.
Mar 14 - 12:31 AM

Paul Millsap hit 6-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and a block in 39 minutes of Monday's 119-111 loss to the Warriors.

After failing to double-double in 11 straight games, Millsap has now accomplished the feat in four of his last five games and the one he missed on was a 27-point, nine-rebound gem. He's been a bit disappointing over the last month or so, but might be ready to turn it around after a rough February.
Mar 6 - 10:07 PM

Paul Millsap double-doubled during Sunday's 97-96 loss to the Pacers, putting up 23 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four turnovers in 37 minutes.

This was Millsap’s 16th double-double and eighth 20-10 game of the season, and it was nice to see him get some steals after recording zero in his previous two outings. Dwight Howard brought down 14 boards in this one, to go with nine points (2-of-3 FGs, 5-of-11 FTs), three assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 35 minutes. Atlanta will need big-time performances from these guys if they hope to pull out a win against Golden State on Monday.
Mar 5 - 5:36 PM

Paul Millsap scored 27 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

The scoring seems to be back up with his 24th 20-plus scoring game this season. He still hasn't quite lived up to the hype, but Millsap's output is slightly up lately. In those five games, Millsap averaged 18.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.4 treys. He should turn in early-round value going forward.
